‘Éowyn, White Lady of Rohan, in this hour I do not believe that any darkness will endure!’ And he stooped and kissed her brow. And so they stood on the walls of the City of Gondor, and a great wind rose and blew, and their hair, raven and golden, streamed out mingling in the air. And the Shadow departed, and the Sun was unveiled, and light leaped forth; and the waters of Anduin shone like silver, and in all the houses of the City men sang for the joy that welled up in their hearts from what source they could not tell.’ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

A'ight folks,
The world Is still going to hell in a bucket, and my brain needs the sweet relief of nice books and uncomplicated romantic stories.
I just finished "red white and royal blue" and I enjoyed it immensely, so I would be grateful for any suggestions of similar novels!
Nothing sad or tragic, angst is fine if there is happy ending only, because the world we live in is tragic enough by itself, i don't need sadness in my escapism as well

Today’s lesson is from The Book of Breads: Crumpets, Chapter One, verses one to ten.
(1) And it came to pass, as was revealèd unto Twitter here, its Recipe being here, that @dduane​​ had a yearning both sudden and untimely, and that yearning was for Crumpets.
(2) And by that Recipe she caused there to be Crumpets, well annointed with butter and with jam, and they were eaten for late supper with a cup of tea, and they were Good.
(3) And on the next day, being Bank Holiday Sunday, it further came to pass that two of those Crumpets were split, and toasted, and buttered; yea, with much butter were they spread, and richly smeared withal.
(4) And one of those Crumpets was further topped with Marmite, and with cheese. Cheddar was that cheese, mature and strong of flavour.
(5) And that cheese was melted, yea, with heat was it causèd to grow soft, and toothsome, and full of taste, and upon that softened cheese was sprinkled dust of chilli which did enliven it exceedingly.
(6) And a book was opened unto that place where Nigel Slater writes of Marmite, and his words were read whilst those Crumpets were devoured.
Tumblr media
(7) Yea, verily, nommed upon were they, and utterly consumed; and the butter being melted did flow unto the wrist of that hand which held the Crumpets; yea, even unto the elbow thereof.
(8) And the Crumpets spread with Butter were Traditional, and the Crumpets spread with Marmite and with cheese and chilli were Different, yet both were deemèd most acceptable.
(9) And all who ate of them enjoyed their rich savour, while at that same time were coated lavishly with butter.
(10) And the butter washed off in due course, and there are more Crumpets for later, and they will be Good.
Here endeth the lesson.

I always cry at least two times during this movie, one (very minor spoilers) when they sing in the union hall and the other at the end when all the local union banners go up. It's beautiful and heart wrenching.

Whether we march with banners or without, the important thing is that we march together, all of us. That’s what this whole thing has been about since the beginning and that is absolutely how it is going to end. Together, us united. PRIDE (2014) dir. Matthew Warchus

“I finally found the energy to come outside. It had been a long stretch of watching nice days go by. It’s easy to get into the prison of routine. But this morning my mom poured me a cup of orange juice. She had this song playing in the kitchen: ‘For The Good Times,’ by this old, southern artist named Al Green. Really old, even before your time. But I love it. It got me going. And by the time I finished my orange juice, I said: ‘I’m doing it. I’m going outside today.’ There was a moment of doubt when I was in the shower. There was some hair frustration. I was trying to detangle it, and it didn’t want to work with me. So I was about to give up. I was about to head back to bed. But I pushed through, and on the way out the door I grabbed my new skateboard. I just got it yesterday, $230, but worth it. Rides extra smooth. I caught the Q11 Bus to the Jamaica Avenue subway, and I didn’t even pay at the turnstile. I did this thing where the skateboard went under, and I jumped over. I did it in front of a bunch of people. And I felt like a boss: ‘yah, you saw me.’ There were some women there, and not a lot of women skateboard. So I put one on for the girls. Rode the E-train straight into the city. It’s a long ride, but at least I never had to switch trains. And now I’m here. There’s good music playing. Everyone is doing something different. And the weather is perfect. The wind is blowing, but not enough to mess up my hair. It’s completely clear. The sun is on my skin. There aren’t any clouds going over, trying to make me chilly for a few minutes. If I get too hot, I’m just gonna wander into the shade. It’s up to me. It’s one of those days I’m in complete control.”

Ecco. Quindi cinquant’anni dopo sappiamo per certo che da subito si sapeva che erano stati i neofascisti e che la pista anarchica (e l’omicidio Pinelli con tutta la carnevalata a seguito) è stato un utile divertissemént ad uso dell successive stragi, sempre fasciste.
Come diciamo da cinquant’anni del resto.
